Piazza del Duomo, Milano, Italia. June 2012.

Last nite Italy beat England 4 to 2 via penalty kicks in the Eurocup. Everywhere here you could hear people screaming and see people wrapping themselves up in flags, smiling. I thought I would do a small post dedicated to them. In this picture I really enjoy how the duomo in the background adds this element of eeriness to the whole scene. Makes it feel bigger than it is. This small kid definitely knew how to kick a ball for his age. Maybe one day he'll play professionally, who knows. I just know back home this would also be a big deal, its stupid things like this that makes people appreciate their country and their culture and come together at least for a few hours. Differences go away. So we should appreciate them for that, at least. Have a good week, y'all. Cheers.
